And Now For Something Completely Different.

I know members up here like German guns and automobiles. How about German motorcycles? Iíve got one for sale. Posted on advrider and ibmwr, as well as Facebook and several craigslist servers, a 2012 BMW R1200GS Rally Edition.

Drop me a PM and Iíll send you the details.

I love it, but I'm not in the market.

My 1984 R65 has been sitting in the downstairs library for so many years now that I've forgotten how to drive it except in my dreams, when I go roaring across the pastures and jumping over split-rail fences.

Good luck with your sale. Sold my GSAdv just recently. Ad on Adventure Rider was successful. First time since I was fourteen years old that I have been without a MC.
Figured it was finally time to let loose.

Same here. I have been riding my Burgman scooter much more, and my riding style is changing as I continue to slide down the entropy curve. This is my eighth BMW motorcycle and quite likely my last.

Yes, I sold my BMW 1978 r800 a few years ago. If I still lived in rural Illinois I would still have it. Here in the Denver area, there are so many unlicensed and uninsured drivers, and a lot can't read English so street signs are pretty much useless in a lot of cases. Anyway, too much risk riding around here. Plus my reflexes and strength aren't what they used to be. Sad day when I sold it, but at least it went to someone in San Diego who will appreciate and care for it.

I sold my bike through a consignment dealer who sells Motorcycle, ATV, UTV, Snowmobile, or trailers. It worked out well for me, I did not have to show the bike to suspicious potential buyers. I didn't have to deal with payment methods, etc.

The people at the consignment place were great to work with as they are interested in what they sell.

Maybe there is a consignment dealer near you, if so I would at least look into it.

It's always amazed me how common that is.

After an ugly, life-altering encounter with a dog in 1979 I have been reluctant to ride. I sold my rice burner in 1983 and I havenít looked back.

I did, however, just get an Audi A7 that is beyond fine. The Germans sure know how to build a kick-ass car
